To the and Exchange Commission,

As a senior, retired w/my finances primarily invested in an IRA & a
few other stocks, I often wonder whether the advise given me by my
brokerage firm is best for me...or best for them.  I need your support
to make certain that my retirement savings is not lost through fees or
investments which fill the broker's pockets, not my own.  Those pockets
are slim enough as it is.

Please set a STRONG standard which protects me and millions of others
like me, instead of one w/loopholes which benefit the financial

I'm counting on you to make a stronger rule that closes the loophole.
Americans who've worked hard to save for retirement deserve peace of
mind about their financial security.
